PRPNet May-June Challenge

PrimeGrid - So, 27.05.2017 - 07:48
Cube Challenge 3^3=27 Please join us for a PRPNet challenge at the 27 prime search project from the 27th May till 3rd of June. Leading edge of the search now up to 6,525,272 on both the plus and minus sides. Goal will be to get to 6.6M and hopefully find a big prime! More about the 27121 prime search can be found here. News and infos about the PRPNet client can be found here. Stats will be available at the well known place here. All previous PRPNet challenge stats can be found here. Discussion and more information can be found here: 2017 PRPNet May-June Challenge. Good luck!

SixTrack News - May 2017

LHC@home - Pi, 26.05.2017 - 16:43
The SixTrack team would like to thank all the teams who took part in the 2017 pentathlon hosted by SETI.Germany:
https://www.seti-germany.de/boinc_pentathlon/
where LHC@Home was chosen for the swimming discipline. The pentathlon gave us the possibility of carrying out a vast simulation campaign, with lots of new results generated that we are now analysing. While the LHC experiments send volunteers tasks where data collected by the LHC detectors has to be analysed or Monte Carlo codes for data generation, SixTrack work units probe the dynamics of LHC beams; hence, your computers are running a live model of the LHC in order to explore its potential without actually using real LHC machine time, precious to physics.

Your contribution to our analyses is essential. For instance, we reached ~2.5 MWUs processed in total, with a peak slightly above 400kWUs processed at the same time, and >50TFLOPs, during the entire two weeks of the pentathlon. The pentathlon was also the occasion to verify recent improvements to our software infrastructure. After this valuable experience, we are now concentrating our energies on updating the executables with brand new functionality, extending the range of studies and of supported systems. This implies an even increased dependence on your valuable support.

Thanks a lot to all people involved! We count on your help and committment to science and to LHC@home to pursue the new challenges of beam dynamics which lie ahead.

Scheduled upgrades

Enigma@Home - Št, 25.05.2017 - 23:37
The server requires BOINC server code upgrade to support GPU app,
Per-app credits, application selection and a couple of other things.

I have scheduled the upgrade for this weekend, the server will be stopped on saturday, in worst case it might even go completely offline for a couple of hours.

Why Not? Another PPS-Mega Prime!

PrimeGrid - St, 24.05.2017 - 13:33
On 22 May 2017 21:53:30 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PPS Mega Prime Search project found the Mega Prime: 611*2^3398273+1 The prime is 1,022,985 digits long and will enter Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 202nd overall. The discovery was made by Randall Scalise (Randall J. Scalise) of the United States using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 @ 3.30GHz with 8GB RAM, running Linux. This computer took about 1 hour 18 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. The prime was verified on 24 May 2017 04:17:13 UTC by Luis DeJesus (lajjr) of the United States using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U @ 2.00GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Core Edition. This computer took about 5 hours 10 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Luis is a member of the Latinos Aqui team. For more details, please see the official announcement.

Scheduled Server Maintenance Today

Milkyway@Home - Ut, 23.05.2017 - 23:04
Hey Everyone,

Just doing a quick update to our optimization algorithms on the server. You should notice the site go down for a couple minutes and then come back up. This update is nothing that should effect the way you interact with MilkyWay@home.

Project News 22 may 2017

Leiden Classical - Po, 22.05.2017 - 00:00
Due to spammers automatically creating accounts, account creation can and will be disabled at our discretion. Furthermore, this project is reaching its ending phase probably somewere in 2018. This means as long as the software runs and the OS receives updates (EOL 2020), the project will be maintained, but automatic work creation will stop for sure.

nbody 1.64 release for Mac

Milkyway@Home - Št, 11.05.2017 - 21:14
Hey All,

I just released the newest version of nbody, version 1.64, for Mac single and multi-threaded. Please let me know if there are any issues.

PLEASE NOTE: We only have one mac machine for building and testing, meaning I had to test the binaries on the same machine that I built them on. So please let me know if anything strange crashing is seen.

Thank you all for your continued support,
Sidd
